This study was undertaken to identify the trigeminal nuclear regions connected to the hypoglossal (XII) and facial (VII) motor nuclei in rats. Anterogradely transported tracers (biotinylated dextran amine, biocytin) were injected into the various subdivisions of the sensory trigeminal complex, and labeled fibers and terminals were searched for in the XII(More)
We investigated whether the production of the sixteen subunits of the GABAA receptors and of the different variants of GABA Breceptors are modulated in rat medial vestibular nuclei (MVN) following unilateral labyrinthectomy. Specific α1–6, β1–3, γ1–3 and δ GABAA and GABAB B1 and B2receptor radioactive oligonucleotides were used for in situ hybridization to(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the predictive value of electromyographic recordings for the immediate facial nerve outcome after solitary vestibular schwannoma (VS) removal. STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS AND METHODS From November 2005 to July 2007, 120 operated solitary VSs monitored by NIM Response 2.0(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the nerve facial displacement by a vestibular schwannoma and nerve adhesion to tumor as predictive factors of facial function outcome. STUDY DESIGN A prospective cohort study. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS Ninety-six patients undergoing a solitary vestibular schwannoma surgery during 2005 were included. Data concerning(More)
